Medium build, showing their Burmese ancestry. The Tiffanie is a friendly and love attention and need to be part of the family. They can be quite demanding and often follow their owners around the house crying for attention. If spoken to they often appear to understand and answer.
Tiffanies are very intelligent and can often work out such problems as how to open doors. Their curiosity and friendliness can lead them to stray into visitor’s garages and they may be best confined to the house or a secure garden. They usually settle quite happily to this arrangement, as above all they do love their home comforts.
They love to play and toys and scratching post should be provided for amusement as well as quality time set aside for play with their humans. They can be very sensitive to their owner’s feelings and this makes them excellent companions. They are generally good with children.
The semi-long haired Tiffanie does require some attention but not as much the full longhaired coats of the Persians. A comb and soft brush will keep the coat in good order and if showing a Tiffanie a bath may be necessary.
